This was the completion of the suspended game from Monday. The two teams did not attempt Tuesday’s regularly scheduled game because Altoona has too many games. The Curve, if I’m counting correctly, finished nine games in the final seven days of the month of June and two in the first two days of July and do not have a double-header scheduled in the next six days in front of the Eastern League’s All-Star Break. Also, there was a 2:54 minute delay in this game so the two teams’ interest in not starting a second game makes sense in that light.
In the game that actually happened, both teams went with their Tuesday starters since the game was suspended after an inning on Monday, and the B-Mets had to deal with one of the Pirates’ top pitching prospect – Jameson Taillon.
2B Danny Muno (.238/.381/.367 – 74 games) had the best night on the B-Mets, going 3-for-3 with a double, a walk and 2 RBI. The 24-year-old Muno has 56 walks and 54 strikeouts and is hitting .333/.500/.515 in his last 10 games and finished June with a .901 OPS after a .595 OPS in May.
